The Kumano River with its deep history (a part of the Kumano Kodo), large volume and scenic views make it one of the best packrafting trips in Japan. If the Kumano River is too high we can paddle one of the many tributaries that boast emerald green waters and spectacular native bush.
On this trip we will teach everything you need to know to tackle the easy grade1-2 white-water; basic paddle strokes, using your body in the boat, reading water, recovery techniques
As the packraft is so small, even on the relatively mellow water of the Kumano River you will feel the thrills and the freedom of the great outdoors.
Please note: due to operational constraints we may not be able to run this tour everyday. In some cases we may be able to give you the option to swap to canyoning or other activities.
